To Jamaicans, reggae has two distinct meanings: first, it is a generic term for all popular Jamaican music; but most specifically, it refers to the distinct beats and styles popular from about 1969 to 1983.
Early reggae was experimental and ranged widely, incorporating the jerky instrumentals of session bands and the sweet harmonies of established vocal groups, while inventing new types of rhythms.
